“We are honored to receive the Outstanding Mobile Enterprise Solution Beacon Award for our work with Comdata on the FleetAdvance Mobile App. This is an example of using data insights in the mobile world to create bespoke experiences that engage and excite users while solving business problems.” – Erik Burckart, CTO, PointSource

The Comdata FleetAdvance App:
Comdata needed a mobile solution to leverage their proprietary scoring system, 45+ years of aggregated data, and external data sources to enable fleet drivers to make better decisions on the road, deliver costs savings to their clients and create a competitive business advantage.

Using Cloudant, SoftLayer, IBM MobileFirst Platform and IBM MobileFirst Quality Assurance, our mobile experts created the FleetAdvance application to close the data gaps and optimize each mobile moment.

The FleetAdvance app recommends the best fueling locations based on current pricing and proprietary data, reduces routing time, and provides additional fuel savings through route optimizations in real-time, incorporating sensor and location data available from the drivers’ mobile device. The FleetAdvance app also provides the drivers an improved user experience by enabling them to input the amenities they value most and incorporating those preferences into recommended routes.
